Spring truck traffic restrictions in Russia in 2019.

Russia introduces spring traffic restrictions for heavy goods vehicles. The bans apply to regional and municipal roads. Depending on the region, they are valid from mid-March to early June.

The restrictions are intended to protect the surface of roads which are particularly vulnerable to damage during the spring floods and snowmelt. The time of restrictions depends on the climatic conditions of the area, the condition of roads and the intensity of heavy traffic.

For example, in the central and southern regions of the country, the bans start as early as March and will last until the end of April, while in the Siberian and northern regions they will last until the end of May.

Since 2018, there have been no restrictions on roads of federal significance because, according to the official position of the Federation’s government, more than 80% of these roads are in good condition.
